Kobe Bryant has taken his skills to Hollywood, again.
Not only has Kobe wowed on the basketball court, he has also wowed the Oscar board of governors- - and is now an Oscar-nominated producer!
Dear Basketball, is based on a poem Bryant wrote for the Players Tribune during his final season with the LA Lakers.
Don't miss the 90th Academy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, Sunday, March 4th on ABC.
What?? This is beyond the realm of imagination. It means so much that the @TheAcademy deemed #DearBasketball worthy of contention. Thanks to the genius of @GlenKeanePrd & John Williams for taking my poem to this level. It's an honor to be on this team. #OscarNoms pic.twitter.com/M2joyk9D1V— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) January 23, 2018
